Objectives of research

Main objectives:

LEDA is a research project to study legal and regulatory measures to promote sustainable transport in cities. The scope is encompassing measures in the transport sector, but also in related sectors influencing transport demand and supply like environment and land-use planning. The focus is on passenger transport. All kinds of legal and regulatory measures concerning urban transport and related areas will be included in an inventory of measures that are currently being used in a selection of 40 European cities. About 20 of the most innovative, effective and less well-known measures will be analysed in depth. Research will include aspects like public responses, enforcement requirements and aspects related to accompanied measures. A temptative framework to analyse the transferability of the measures will be established. Much effort will be laid to derive guidelines addressed to urban authorities on how to implement the most effective measures, and on recommendations addressed to the regional, national and European authorities on the possible changes in the legal frameworks. The instruments planned to support the dissemination of the results are a website, a CD-ROM with the database, brochures, an international conference and round table conferences in each partner country in order to initiate a debate on the appropriateness of changing the legal frameworks. The whole process will be accompanied by four Regional User Groups, which together cover all the Member States and CEEC countries.
